To Prepare:

  • Sauté garlic cloves and any fresh peppers (seed removed optional) for 3-4 minutes over medium heat or until tender in 2 tablespoons Garlic Infused Olive Oil
  • Puree the pineapple, chilies and garlic along with the pineapple juice in a food processor or blender
  • Bring the pureed mixture, vinegar, lime juice an zest and salt to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. 
  • Simmer 8-10 minutes stirring frequently to reduce the liquid 
  • Whisk in honey and stir continuously, reduce heat if necessary to avoid burning

Alternative: Use whichever chilies/peppers you have available and add enough to get the level of heat to where you want.
OR Instead of using chilies, use your favorite hot sauce, such as sriracha, to add the chili heat.
Let cool, thickens with refrigeration, store in fridge up to 2 weeks
